Users will be able to view different areas of a nuclear facility and understand how Hydratight tools can enhance the customer experience. It is available free from the App Store.
Gavin Coopey, Global Nuclear Market Leader, Hydratight, said: “We’re delighted to have created this additional tool to provide our customers with an added reference and touch point. The app allows users to gain a deeper understanding of the solutions available for use in Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPVs), Steam Generators or Pressurizer areas.
“It demonstrates applications for many of our products and services in these and other areas of a plant. It also highlights the successful results achieved by use of past products and allows users to contact Hydratight representatives directly.”
The iPad app uses a speciality animation to capture the essential maintenance work being carried out in some of the world’s largest power plants. It also allows users to view Hydratight’s history in the nuclear market.
